Message 1: Milwaukee conference date

Date: Tue, 13 Sep 1994 17:20:03 Milwaukee conference date
From: Edith A Moravcsik <>
Subject: Milwaukee conference date

Shortly after we announced the new date for the conference on
Functionalism and Formalism in Linguistics (April 11-13, l996),
several people e-mailed us pointing out that, while this date
managed to avoid Easter, it overlapped with Passover. We have
therefore decided to make one final change: come hail or high
water, the conference will be held April 18-20 (Thursday through
Saturday) l996, on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus.

A new call for papers will be posted in the Spring, with the abstract
deadline set for November 17, l995.
